    Hi Guys,

    Here are some pics from our trip. I think all 4 of us are scheming on how to get back there.

    More to follow... Sorry - in no particular order..

    This poor guy was a victim of me yanking my fly off a submerged log. He must have been cruising by and got nailed by the 4/0 hook as it dislodged!


    Tilapia Rendalia (I think) - apparently a rare catch!


    11lbs of flex:


    and some more:


    and the result:




    Some nice looking bream water:

    A well organised tackle box - come one, come all!




    Kev's first fish on the trip:


    Day 1 we did this. By the last day, and all the 3m+ crocs we saw, we will not be doing it again any time soon:

    Ambitious bugger! That is a 4/0- no idea how he got it in his mouth:

    I have got to stop doing this on camera:


    Almost a double up - John had his in the boat just before i got hit:


    This was a VERY good spot - flood plains receding into the channel:




    Here we were standing on the back of the boat while it was moored at night, looking into the water with a monster torch. We saw dozens of different fish species swimming past, some of which I am positive i have had in my fish tank - bala sharks etc, all of which were getting smashed to pieces by the barbel:


    Check the bend:


    And the size of the fish that did it:


    That is all.

    Flippin great. Looks like a place that needs to be visited for sure. Those camoflaged caps you guys are wearing are great- I almost couldn't spot your head in the sunset photographs.
